TTC brass say the bus driver who left his bus unattended last week in Etobicoke has been disciplined.

What form that punishment has taken, we won't find out.

"We have taken some action, as an employer we don't discuss or disclose what that action is, but the message has been sent loud and clear to all our employees."

Spokesman Brad Ross says three workers in all were involved in the incident on May 20th in Etobicoke, including the driver of the bus and the driver who was supposed to take over.

"It was a miscommunication, a very unfortunate one, but one we've taken seriously," says Ross, "nothing we feel was malicious in anyway, it was just poorly handled."

The incident came to light after a passenger posted a video to youtube.com pointing out the bus driver had left, and no one had arrived to take his place.
